iCoachKids: Innovative Education & Training for a Specialist Children & Youth Coaching Workforce.

European Coaching Children Curriculum

One of iCK’s objectives was the development of a European Coaching Children Curriculum (ECCC).

The purpose of this curriculum is to provide a reference point for all those involved in children’s coaches’ education and development.

Whether you are creating a short apprentice coach qualification, a two-hour continuous professional development module or writing up a full three-year bachelor’s degree, the ECCC should provide a clear menu of options for what content to put on your learning opportunity and how to deliver it.

The ECCC has been developed through consultation with coaches and researchers in all areas related to youth sport. A first draft was launched for consultation at the first iCK Conference in the fall of 2017 in Budapest (Hungary). The final version was released in December 2017.

Translations into Spanish, French, Dutch, Russian, Lithuanian and Arabic are available here

The ECCC is also being used to inform the development of the three Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) that will be the centre-piece of iCK.

We would love to hear your views about the ECCC.
